You promised to pay Andreas school fee,

But now I've got a new reminder

-because you have not paid.

Broadhill Agency.

A moment.

-It's not my problem.

-Broadhill Agency.

-Hi, Mr Broadhill.

-Why do you build a new house?

Have they been unable to obtain

On Diane all day?

It is your responsibility to me

And the children to pay the bills.

Taken the tube off?

They can get her assistant.

-It's not my problem, Dan.

-Yes, right away, sir.

Now roll there heads.

Hello, Mr Broadhill. No, sir.

She will not be disturbed

-but I try to grab her.

A moment.

This does not happen.

Sorry, sir. It lasts a bit yet.

Yes, I'll probably.

Come on, Diane.

Why am I so dumb?

That it should go.


-After all...

-Do you have it good?

-Hi, Henry. Yes, fine. What happens?

-My office in ten minutes.

-Okay, yes.


-You would talk to me.

Sit down.

Henry, I...

I know... what you want to say.

I have been a little absent-

-Recent weeks.

But I promise that it will be better.

I've gone through a lot of

With my husband and the children.

I give the Georgia O'Brien account

to the Matheson.


To Matheson? It's your joke.

Georgia rang this morning and said,

That you have not called since Thursday.

-It was yesterday.

-Previous Thursday.

Okay... Henry. This is my account.

I have had Georgia for the past five years.

Too hard and long-

-to just

Must be taken from me.

And I appreciate everything,

You have done for our agency.

Are you firing me?

You know that it is madness.

-What do you say?

-You can not do that. Not now.

I am good at my work and it

You know. Much better than Matheson.

He powers nothing.

Listen here, Henry.

I just have a difficult period.

I get through it, as always.

These accounts are not waiting.

I can't give you more time.

I have given half my life

To this company.

Okay? I have missed school parties,

Birthdays, vacations and funerals.

I gave birth to almost my children in there,

And I have worked harder and longer-

-than most men in the company.

Then I have a bad month...

-... and you guys?

-It's not, and you know.

Really? It feels like this.

You and I have a long history

Together. Keep free for some time.

-This does not happen.

-Solve what needs to be resolved-

-then we are talking about a few months.

It's not the world's undergoing, Diane.

Keep vacation. Join your daughters.

It's mother's Day of the weekend.

You don't have to think about

Deadlines or stressed clients.

Just enjoy it, okay?

Your daughters will love it.

I know it well. Poor mother.

This is the third time this week.

You must be here before half-five.

Then we drive.

No, Miss. You probably have homework.

A pink envelope. Fine.

Yes, to hide

Its terrible content.

Andrea! Dishes.

-I take it later.

No, now. Come on.

-You still call the nose...

-Think you noticed it.

Mind. Why are you at home so early?

-I am well at home to normal time.

-If you were an ordinary mother.

-Hi, Mom. How is your day gone?

Not worst, and yours? Good. I start

Work in college and has received

-and you know what? I've made food,

Because I wanted to do something for you.

Fine. When you have finished talking,

Do you want to start cooking.

-Just as impressive as usual.

-I hope your therapy takes effect.

It was a joke.

Evidently not.

Get air...

Skills? Good. My trip.

-Do not eat?

-I ate lunch late.

Girls, flax.

I know that it has been

A difficult period-

-For you. For all of us. And...

I know that I have not been

So much at home at the latest-

-but I would keep a little free, okay?

So we can really be together.

What do you say to it?

-What have you done about our mother?

-What better time is there-

-than now on weekends?

What are you talking about? We must

At the music festival with dad.

No... I didn't know.

I do not comprehend that I

Said yes to it.

-For that is my special day

Now on Sunday.

What happens on Sunday?

Andrea? Have you forgotten,

What it is on Sunday?

It is... Mother's Day. Did you hear about it?

Well yes.


Good. Take your pajamas on.


Homework? Only a program tonight.


-a program, a book.


-Perfect, high five. I love you.

-What's with you?

-In other words,

-My two daughters had forgotten

Mother's Day now on Sunday?

I told about music for

A month ago. Don't remember it?

Of course your father must make sure

That Mother's Day is about him-

-and plan something with you.

It is typical.

We may eat dinner here

or something. Why all that fuss?

You are never at home anyway.

Andrea, darling. You understand it

Probably not, but I have had-

-The longest week followed

Of the worst day of my life.

So if I can get just one evening,

Where you are not my enemy...

-... it would be nice.

-Do you make fun with me?

I just asked what was wrong.

You should try it sometime.

Good morning, Los Angeles.

Here is Charlie Jones at KBAC-

-Desiring all mothers out there

A happy Mother's Day!

The sun shines and I hope

That you get a great day!

Our lines are open,

So call your desires into us.


where is here dark.

Mom, I'm very sorry.

The phone died and we got stuck in a queue.

It was so difficult for you-

-that you do not even

Could give me one evening?

I said Jo,

That she would be upset.

-Go to your rooms.

Like! Dad would never...

-Andrea, stop.

-Just go, both.

What a mother.

Happy Mother's Day to me.
